Welcome to the Malawi Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development

The Ministry is composed of six technical departments namely: Lands & Valuation, Physical Planning, Surveys, Housing, Urban Development and Buildings. These technical departments are grouped into three subsectors: Land, housing, and urban development.

The mandate of the Ministry is to provide land and housing management services to the general public and all interested stakeholders/parties seeking these services.

The Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development draws its mandate from various statutes and policy instruments such as the Land Act, Town and Country Planning Act and the Land Survey Act.
